Burnley vs Chelsea: Prediction, kick-off time, TV, live stream, team news, head-to-head records, and odds for today
Chelsea will try to make it back-to-back victories before the international break when they face Burnley on Saturday afternoon.
After a disappointing start to the season, Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur team recovered some much-needed form on Monday night, defeating Fulham despite being only a handful of points outside the relegation zone.
With games against Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, and Newcastle to follow after the break, Chelsea must guarantee that their triumph at Craven Cottage was not a one-off.
Burnley had reason to be optimistic after winning their first Premier League game of the season against Luton Town in midweek. However, Vincent Kompany’s team is yet to win a game on home grounds.
Burnley vs Chelsea is scheduled for an 3pm BST kick-off on Saturday, October 7, 2023.

Burnley vs Chelsea team news

Burnley vs Chelsea prediction
While Chelsea benefited from some poor Fulham defence in their win at Craven Cottage, Pochettino will welcome a return to goalscoring form.
There were some positives in that performance, and only Sheffield United have surrendered more Premier League goals this season than Burnley. Chelsea can make it two wins in a row and keep the atmosphere upbeat as they prepare for a fortnight away from club football.
Chelsea to win, 1-0.
